    Pokemon Crystal – Title screen

    Until Pokemon Go came along, I had never played a Pokemon game. And while I enjoy playing a little Pokemon Go once in a while, I never really understood the mass appeal of the earlier games. So many of the games were just slight updates to others in the series. Pokemon Crystal is a good example.

    Pokemon Crystal was released for the Game Boy Color in 2001 and was the 7th game in the series (the 6th released in North America). It was the first developed specifically for the Game Boy Color and was not compatible with the original Game Boy. However, Pokemon Crystal was basically just a slightly enhanced version of Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver released a year earlier. It added spectacular new features like the ability to choose your sex and animated sprites in addition to another subplot or two.

    There are a large number of Pokemon games but many of then have been remakes or slightly enhanced versions of previous releases. Pokemon Gold and Silver were remade once again as Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver for the Nintendo DS. There’s nothing wrong with Pokemon Crystal but if you are buying Pokemon games to actually play vs. to collect, you can skip over Gold and Silver to play Crystal or skip over all three to HeartGold and SoulSilver instead. Nevermind, skip all of those and just get the remake of Pokemon Crystal for the 3DS. See what I mean?
